RS Components wins ninth consecutive RoSPA award

06 June 2022

RS COMPONENTS has been awarded the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Gold Medal for Occupational Health and Safety, making it the company’s ninth consecutive Gold Award.

The RoSPA Awards are one of the most prestigious and recognised schemes in the world with almost 2,000 entries every year. Organisations that are awarded the RoSPA Gold Award demonstrate well developed occupational health and safety management systems and culture, outstanding control of risk and very low levels of error, harm, and loss.

RS Components' key achievement over the last year has been an all-accident frequency rate down by 57% in 2020/21. The company has an ongoing focus on safety and avoiding all preventable accidents, as well as a 2030 action plan for zero accidents within the business. 

"We are thrilled to have been awarded our ninth consecutive RoSPA Gold Award and to be recognised by one of the most prestigious schemes in the world," said Debbie Lentz, president global supply chain at Electrocomponents. "The health and safety of our team has always been our top priority and we are continuously working to ensure we have the highest health and safety standards implemented across our organisation.”
